Tracing old firearms.
I'm cleaning up an old Winchester .22 that's been neglected for years if not decades. After getting thru layers of patina/grease/mouse poop, I found where someone etched what looks like a social security number on the underside of the barrel. I'm sure this was before identity theft was even thought of.
I'm wondering if there is a legal way of using this number to search who owned this rifle?? There is a side of me thinking that this may have been someones grandpa's rifle and may want it back in the family.
